THEORIES OF ARCHITECTURE & A ; URBANISM [ ARC61303 ]
Undertaking: Theorizing Erection
1.1 Project Sketchation
The aim of this adventure is to consign and interpretation of architect’s architectural scheme through a plain notice and anatomy of his adventures. Each of the architectural elements in the clarified fabric accomplish be tedious down and matched with the apt architectural theories. So that, anatomy of the interdependence among erection and its societal, cultural and sensible matter accomplish be elaborated through clarified diagrams and sketchation.
1.2 Endground of the Architect
Architect: Looi Mun Kit
LAM I.D: A/L 344
Ar. Looi Mun Kit is peculiar of the objectagers in LNL SDN BHD. He late most of his childhood in a dispense as it grants a dievident activity knowledge. Therefore, it shapes his diagnosis and his slogan in this scope. His counsel activity brought him up as a elevatedest, a decisive extemporeicial. Amiable opportunities were granted to enunciate his matter and be definite on what he wants. During his Diploma pristine ages, he does misconception comprehend the theories of erection at entire due to the feverish blend of assignments. Thriveing he graduated from his Diploma, he went to effect precedent continues on his farther surveies at aggravateseas. He gained the most precious information encircling erection scope from his discreet object. He to the generous comprehends how this scope effects thriveing couple pristine ages of making-ready. He passed through his Masterss instead lenient. Thriveing his graduation, he continued effect underneathneath his pristine family to accelerated extempore his liability. Thriveing five pristine ages of effecting knowledge, he passed his administrative article by elevatedest consistard.
Ar. Looi has his ain scheme on erection is a duty in our lives. Entire peculiar thread coercionmed the erection in mediocre curtail it creates a activity fashion to the explanationr. He so focuses on phenomenology or the consciousness of apexographic apex. Huobject activities or knowledges of the unboundeds are focused and purposed precisely. Entire unbounded was betrothed with alpeculiar diagnosis to upheave-up the aggravateentire spacial knowledge. The circulation issue was intentional in gratefully to allow explanationrs to esteem entire peculiar hole of the fabric, encroachment no wastage of unbounded.
1.3 Endground of the Firm
Ar Looi coincidently with his rank compeer, Mr Adrian Liew ruled to unconcealed their ain family. LNL SDN BHD was enjoinly in the twelvemonth 2009. LNL is a sketch posse associated with MK LOOI Architect. The preparation of LNL is from the twain objectager Looi and Liew. So that, it consists a farther reason of their posse slogan which is “Lines into a Activitystyle” . LNL has a studio approve extemporeice temperature. LNL be of a class of sketchers that prizes in the integrating of the client’s needs with their sketch belief that each “lines” could be made into a “lifestyle” .
The family is immediately focuses abundantly on bungalow adventures. LNL prized that the sodality needs to improve their activity fashion, and a amiable activity fashion is inculcated pre-eminent and elevatedest in homes. By planing improve homes, the description of the occupants’ lives accomplish be improved. Not barely that, LNL so prize on amiable effect deserves a amiable wage. Hereafter, their rates were ne’er lowered to insure the creative description and their reputation. In coming, LNL is lenient commenunite in enunciateer’s adventure to excite scourteous their solicitude in fabric scope.
2.1 Endground of the Iron Leaf, Bentong
The sight is located at Bentong, Pahang which is 45 kilometers north from Kuala Lumpur. The map of this fabric is a refuge family coercion the client. It is an inactive unbounded coercion weekends escaped. The client wants to repose the still and serene territory of ambiance with polity investigate milieus. She so wished to hpristine a fabric sketch to allow her to knowledge nearer to the polity.
The conceive of this adventure is to conceive an polity that emulates the coercionm and the portion of a foliage. This modern-day sketch fabric consists extinguished in a rain coercionest puting due to its compeerriality and the sight matter. Steel was explanationd as the elevatedest conceiveion coercion this fabric. It creates the lightweight and elevated impression, it so portraits the entire conceit of a foliage trusting on a tree.
2.2 Architectural Theories
The scheme of modernism can be observed through a incongruous elements in the fabric. Modernism is understandking the enjoin and homelyness of the fabric objectner. The fabric had shown its homelyness through quenchedward sketch and spacial layout. Louis Sullivan’s scheme on ‘conceive thrive function’ is applied in amiable in this fabric. Spatial bond of the fabric is entire part finished in a embracing signifier. Social and peculiar unboundeds are rankified palpably. So that, to upheave-up the aggravateentire spacial knowledge, the social unboundeds are located at the hole of the fabric where the investigate or uproar would misconception collision the explanationr in peculiar unboundeds.
The thriveing portion of a modernism scheme applied on the fabric sketch is the unfastened planning. The map of the failure programs is to film aggravate the threads or name among quenchedward and toward. Glass panels were explanationd as disengagement thread among quenchedward and toward. The explanation of glass panel accomplish misconception blockade the mature lies of the encompassing polity and it was brought into the internally ( Figure2.2.1 ) . So film aggravateing the boundaries, unfastened pedestal programs were interpreted as an unfastened activity, kitchen and dining empire as social unbounded or as a node.
Following, language of athwart signifiers and tasteless threads were peculiar of the most signifying modernism erection. Diagram 2.2.1 has shown that Iron foliage is sketch with influential language on tasteless threads. As compared to Frank Lloyd Wright’s Falling H2O, twain of these familys own the homogeneous portion.
Last, honestness on misinterpretationfeeling represented peculiar of the diagnosis in modernism erection. Fabric misinterpretationsenses were remained to its most ancient signifier and composition. Compeerrial comlie is defenseless and withextinguished any coatings ( Figure2.2.2 ) . Indurated wentire was explanationd to contrariety with the wooden pedestal.
Deconstructivism focused on making pandemonium and disjuncture. The roof is the elevatedlighted apex in this adventure, where it so consist coercioning the rudiment of deconstructivism. The roof is misconception an inferior rock roof save it was finished depicting as a foliage trusting on a tree. The bond of beams grants demonstrable collisions towards the explanationr when they pre-eminent penetrate the unbounded. The rarity of the roof gave a consciousness of suspended in a still allay and a modern-day balbutiation of abquenched polity, approve a drifting foliage from a tree. It so grants a demonstrable visual sight of sharp capriciousness and a inferior pandemonium.
2.2.3 Dubious Regionalism and Phenomenology
Dubious regionalism excitement is a league of Modernism and Regionalism. Dubious regionalism focused on the peculiarity of a cultivation suitableness at the identical curtail encroachment an interpolitical objectner of sketch. Erection of dubious regionalism conceives mentions to the sight ; it so can be interpreted as mastermind venue. Iron foliage is sketch congruous to its sight matter. Indurated stilts to end up the fabric so the prop. The fabric is situated at the elevated plant shrouding inversionwards the alcoholic of verdures. Hereafter, the family should be granted with maximal unfastened unboundeds to engage generous custom on the timid intelligence issue coercion intelligenceing entire part amiable as the fulfilling demonstrable visual sight to the explanationr. Scheme of phenomenology is farther borrowed in to the sketch to upheave-up the aggravateentire knowledge coercion the explanationr. The explanation of original misinterpretationfeeling and failures improve the entire travel through the family where creates the consciousness of apexographic apex. When the explanationr penetrates the fabric, they could knowledge the consciousness of obligatory towards the polity where it blends coincidently with the fabric.
As the sight is located on apex of the hill, the unroot standing-upnearest attribute of the plant congruous to the shape caused the sketch to be a embracing reach fabric. The aggravateentire signifier of the fabric is dynamic becaexplanation of its coercionm. Covet and athwart fabric was apexographic apex on the sight. Important unboundeds are purposed at the twain lateralitys. A covet reach of corridor is alike unswerving to the elevatedest social empire.
The fabric orientation is sketch inveterate on the climatic factors. Sketch inveterate on climatic factors accomplish succor to conceive a sustainable sketch fabric ( Diagram 2.3.1 ) . So that, it so accomplish succor to salvage the consume of the fabric by seternally downing unneeded failures. The northern and south coercionm of the fabric is the coercionepart and inversion upheaves. Twain of these upheaves own a coveter facade. This is to eschew the plain amount penetrates to the fabric during the twenty-four hours curtail. Large failures on the face upheave are to lay-hands-on the lie of the brow and so allow daytime to bored into the fabric. In contrariety with the left and nearest upheave, twain of it has a shorter facade. Additionally, louvres or shadowing devices are explanationd to eschew plain amount or ebullition penetrates the fabric ( Diagram 2.3.2 ) .
The extra explanation of the wide failures at face upheave is to allow the most-beggarly intelligence vulgar penetrates the fabric. Commenunite in truth of the intelligenceing, fabric is sketch in a athwart signifier. The coveter laterality of the facade leads the intelligence vulgar penetrates the fabric. Hereafter, the intelligenceing does misconception disturb and unswerving extinguished from another laterality of the facade ( Diagram 2.3.3 ) . It helps to conceive the peevish intelligenceing commenunite apexographic apex internally the fabric. Automatic intelligenceing does misconception coercionce in this fabric becaexplanation of the courteous sketch of failures.
In nutshell, the fabric is sketch in its best orientation whereby daytime and intelligenceing are maximized to succeed in the fabric. It so a sustainable sketch fabric becaexplanation of the note of conceiveing orientation helps to seternally down most of the automatic or unreal evident radiation and intelligenceing. Artificial lightings were misconception required to substitute on during twenty-four hours curtail. Last, the family is eternally ventilated, hereafter automatic intelligenceing are unneeded.
2.3.2 Compeerrial and Technology
Most of the misinterpretationsenses are precast. Compeerrials are clarified or engage warinessfully to procovet and requires poverty wariness with note of the original environment. Therefore, steel is the elevatedest elevated imperfection of the misinterpretationsense. Roof conceiveion is made from steel and screens with a bed metal fencing to return the fabric to its exclusive. Steel so explanationd as frames to grants a lightweight note as relation antecedently with the conceive. So that, steel conceiveion is wild and lenient to conceive in fabric perseverance.
Furthermore, indurated was clarified as built misinterpretationsense. Deferences were built utilizing indurated. Unpolished indurated or identicale rendered surfaces are explanationd to raise through the conceive of modernism whereby honestness on misinterpretationsense. Indurated so explanationd to lower the monstrous contrariety among wooden decks and pedestalings. It accomplish grant the consciousness of integrating with original and built.
Furthermore, glass panels are explanationd to furnish the maximal lies to the explanationr suitableness they can repose the lies well-balanced internally of the fabric. Additionally, maximise daylighting and intelligenceing can be brought into the fabric. Artificial illuming were misconception required during the twenty-four hours. The fabric is eternally ventilated becaexplanation of the wide failures at the most-beggarly intelligence vulgar coercionm. Last, trees that seternally on the sight are recycled and explanationd as a misinterpretationfeeling coercion effects to upheave-up the aggravateentire compeerriality internally the fabric.
Another rudiment to coercioneground on is the roof conceiveion. The prop that props the roof is intentional as a tree-like-structure. It was a disturbion extempore apex from a transmitted identical of abundance or balance prop, the sketcher chose this journey engineering process to end up the roof. The tree-like-structure functioned as a unbounded framing and the fabric process was ascititious from umbrella conceiveion. The entire conceit of this tree-like-structure is to grant an create to the explanationr as a tree offshoot end uping a huge ringing foliage. The entire roof conceiveion is fundamentally defenseless. Inner conceiveion ( beams ) was defenseless to the internally. It entireowed the explanationr knowledge as a huge foliage covers the entire internally. The bond of beams is misconception in a beggarly orderly threads as it thriveed the conceive of deconstructivism, where created a inferior pandemonium signifier. The conceiveion is pre-fabricated antecedently puting at the sight. Last, the conceiveion is made from incongruous steel props and welded coincidently to conceive the coercionm of the tree offshoot.
‘Lines into a activitystyle’ is the slogan of LNL, a homely thread can conceive an eccentric potency and shapes the description of unboundeds that prop a activity fashion. The slogan so matches Ar. Looi’s theories in erection. Each and entire unbounded betrothed with alpeculiar diagnosis to upheave-up the aggravateentire spacial knowledge. Circulation of the toward fabric is sketch in gratefully and misconception a peculiar unbounded is entity left extinguished.
Ar Looi emerged successfully on the theories of Modernism, Deconstructivism and Dubious Regionalism into this fabric sketch. Entire the portion of incongruous theories blends in harmoniously as peculiar entire sketch. Excitemore, to upheave-up the aggravateentire knowledge in the fabric he explanations the scheme of phenomenology. Human’s consciousnesss are borrowed on to understand the fabric as a apexographic apex instead than a unbounded. He so done the sketch that respects the rhetorical environment and suiting with the client’s activity fashion.
The theories or spent knowledge he learnt during his activity own successfully made him a amiable sketcher. Ar Looi and his theories own successfully creates a upstart architectural peculiarity of the Malaysian suitableness consigning the activity description to a entire upstart measure coercion the sodality.
